I Am Thankful My Mum Taught Me To Bake and Cook.

When I was a young boy(only child) I would be watching and trying to help Mum. I loved watching and helping her bake Cakes and Cookies I would get the batter bowl to lick when the cookie or cake mix headed into the oven...the finished product usually ended up in my school lunches.

My Mum was a nurse in a logging camp when you first came to Canada. Not a lot for Nurses to do all day, so she learned to cook and bake for 200 loggers every morning. I remember her telling me they baked 200 cookies each day along with 100's of sandwiches . Each logger loaded their lunch kit with sandwiches and cookies when they headed out for a day in the woods logging.

As a result of my Mum's keen interesting in cooking, she loved to try new recipes. One of my favorites is her chiffon Pumpkin pie. She decided a chiffon pie would lighter after a full turkey dinner(which were famous on their own). Interesting part of this story is my Daughter who lives in Columbus Ohio has all my Mum recipes, so if i forget or lose one I call her.

. We have already had our Thanksgiving in Canada.Almost every Thanksgiving I try and bake at least two pumpkin chiffon pies and tartsI am Thankful My Mum Taught Me to Bake and CookI am Thankful my Mum Taught me to Bake and Cook

Looks fabulous!  Glad you appreciate your mom for what she taught.  My mom has given me her mother's fabulous pumpkin pie recipe. At 87, my mom doesn't remember this much, but I appreciate it whenever I make the pie, as does my family and 89 year old dad.

Men make the best bakers and cooks. What goes into your pumpkin chiffon pie? Do you whipped the egg whites?

Hi Debbie Reynolds Yes, Then gently fold them into the pumpkin mix do not whip with a beater or add sugar to the egg whites.
